The WLB™ Series’ unique approach to impact measurement, monitoring, and verification collectively enables women to achieve sustainable livelihoods and build their economic resilience to socio-economic and environmental shocks and stresses which in turn allows them to act as solutions to multiple sustainable development challenges.
Aligning Across a Multitude of International Standards
Before onboarding entities into the WLB™ Series the impact team conducts an impact due diligence, including interviews with senior management and female clients. This process enables IIX to determine a potential borrower’s impact performance and develop a tailored gender-action plan.
During the onboarding and monitoring processes the team utilizes IIX Values™, a digital impact verification tool to give women at the last mile a voice and a value in capital markets. The results are shared with our borrowers and investors and support developing an inclusive financial market.
During the bonds’ 4-year tenor, IIX provides investors with semi-annual impact reports and annually conducts impact verification with the female clients of our portfolio companies to proactively engage marginalized communities in the evaluation process.
